ASKS JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS TO
PETITION CONGRESS
New York Nov 1 1911
Editor of The Jewish Herald
Dear Sir I inclose a copy of an im
portant letter from Senator Boles Pen
rose of Pennsylvania on the passport
question and recommend that you give
it as wide publicity as possible It is
important that all those who wish to
insure the passage of the resolutions
for the abrogation of the treaty with
Russia now pending in Congress fol
low the suggestion of Senator Penrose
that Jewish organizations pass resolu
tions petitioning their Senators and
Congressmen to help the cause
Very respectfully yours
HERBERT FRIEDENWALD
Secretary American Jewish Committee

October 28 1911
Editor The Jewish Morning Journal
I have your letter of October 26th
and appreciate the sentiments con
tained therein I may add to what
I have already said to the chairman
of the delegation of eminent Hebrews
Hon Mayer Sulzberger that I Bhall
make it my personal business to push
the matter of the passport question
in Russia to a speedy and successful
conclusion for the benefit of our
American citizens irrespective as to
what religion or race one may belong
to and in the event of Russia refus
ing to listen to our just demands I
shall consider it a sacred duty upon
myself to undertake to bring about
an abrogation of our treaty with Rus
sia until such time as Russia may
come to terms
In the meanwhile I ask you to give
consideration to my suggestion of
having Jewish organizations take ac
tion upon this matter and have suita
ble resolutions passed petitioning
their respective Senators and Cong
ressmen to help this worthy cause
I believe your valuable newspaper
can be of considerable service in that
direction
Again assuring you ofmy positive
intentions to take up the matter
with the proper authorities at the
earliest opportunity I am with kindest
regards
Yours truly
Signed BOIES PENROSE

an operation may be the means of sav
ing his life
The incident soon became noised
about the hospital but not a person
who heard the story seemed to be
ready for the sacrifice when suddenly
Mr Morris Kirtz of East Seventy
ninth street became interested Mr
Kirtz happened to be a visitor at the
hospital

ing he asked
A man is on his death bed and the
doctor says transfusion of blood may

attendance took off his coat rolled up
his sleeve bared his arm and told him

cessfully several ounces of Kirtzs
life fluid were taken from his arm

WlejjIs a Gentile and a perfect
stranger to the man who Baved his life
at the risk of his own
Kirtz Is a Jew who until that mo
ment had never heard of Wiers ex
istence
